Well, this site was overdue for an update. The last was in September 2010. Since then, on the 4th of September, we had a massive 7.1 earthquake which fortunately cost no lives.

Now, yesterday, Christchurch suffered another massive quake - 6.3 on the scale - but closer, virtually under the city.

Unfortunately, this time we were not so lucky. There have been fatalities, with the number still climbing. We can report, thank goodness, that all the Borzoi people and their dogs, and most of the Afghan people and dogs, are safe. There are still a couple of Afghan owners we haven't contacted but we believe them to be safe.

A more detailed website update will follow very soon, with more news on the the situation.
